2014 Home Ranch Cuvée Cabernet Sauvignon, Sonoma Valley

2014 Home Ranch Cuvée Cabernet Sauvignon, Sonoma Valley

Weather patterns in Sonoma in 2014 were ideal for ripening Cabernet Sauvignon. Home Ranch Vineyard benefited from the moderate heat and dry conditions as the grapes matured at an even, optimal pace. This cuvée is built on a core of clone 337 from Home Ranch Vineyard in southwest Sonoma Valley, planted by proprietor Craig Haserot in 2002. The Home Ranch Cuvée is built on a core of Cabernet Sauvignon from the Home Ranch Vineyard planted by Sojourn proprietor Craig Haserot in 2002. This is a showy wine, with complex aromas of blueberry and cocoa leaping out of the glass. It has a pleasant, soft entry with seductive, silky tannins. The dark fruit aromas express themselves early with just a hint of mint from the neighboring Eucalyptus trees. The texture is big and lush with fine tannins that linger on the finish. It is a superb value at only $54.

Home Ranch Vineyard

Sonoma Valley

Planted by Sojourn Founder Craig Haserot, the Home Ranch Vineyard is located just 10 minutes northwest of the town of Sonoma. The vineyard sits in a small bowl protected by the southern edge of Sonoma Mountain. The microclimate averages 3 to 5 degrees warmer than downtown Sonoma. The heat brings Cabernet Sauvignon to full maturity, for dark, concentrated wines.
